Style and Fashion at the Teen Choice Awards 2012 – the Good, the Bad and the What on Earth???

WHO: In chronological order…Nina Dobrev, Selena Gomez, Kat Graham, Lea Michele, Jordan Sparks, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber,, Ian Somerhalder, Hayden Panettiere, Debbie Ryan, Peyton List, Demi Lovato, Jojo, Victoria Justice, Bella Thorne, Joe Jonas, Rebecca Black, Tia and Tamera Mowry, NO DOUBT.

WHAT: Teen Choice Awards 2012

WHEN: July 22nd

WHERE: Universal City, California

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: I finally see Selena’s Gomez’s fashion potential, in the midst of try-hards and die-hards she along with (fashion favourite Nina Dobrev in J. Mendel) and Kat Graham managed to set the fashion standard for the night in colourful well-styled looks. Standing out for all the wrong reasons was Demi Lovato in Falguni and Shane Peacock because she not only looked like she was channeling Fergie, she seemed to be downright aping her from head-toe-toe. I have seen many people (Kim Kardashian, Fergie, Kat Graham, Jennifer Lopez, Sonam Kapoor, Malaika Arora etc.) pull off the Falguni and Shane Peacock look flawlessly without looking like they were trying to be someone else but Lovato threw me for a loop. Joe Jonas looked like his outfit was dry clean only but he realised that only after jumping into a pool and looked perplexed as it dried off on the red carpet. Taylor Swift who usually wows me with her style selections let me down by playing it safe in a pale monokini style ice-skater dress by Maria Lucia Hohan, still love her though. Debbie Ryan and Hayden Panettiere (who did a dis-service to a Zuhair Murad dress but wore the best shoes of the night) looked like they were moderators at a prom being attended by Peyton List…among others. Dress your age kids, enjoy your youth! The Mowry twins looked radiant. Apart from my best dressed picks, I truly appreciated seeing Gwen Stefani and her NO DOUBT bandmates (below) walk the red carpet dressed in almost-all back like punk-rock royalty, needing no category of their own.

Hollywood Fashion Update: Salma Hayek and Blake Lively Light Up the ‘Savages’ Premiere in California

Blake Lively (left) never ceases to amaze me, the fact that she never uses a stylist yet manages to pick the right outfit and styles herself perfectly each time she steps out on the red carpet is quite commendable. Here she is at the premiere of her latest film ‘Savages’ in a swirly striped beige and black figure accentuating Zuhair Murad, sensibly paired with her Veronica Lake-esque hair-do and on trend red lips, in fact only one other person came close to stealing her fashion thunder on the red carpet Monday evening in Westwood, California and that was her co-star Salma Hayek in a green floor-length-sequins-embellished Gucci number. Fashion on.

A Blog Post Inspired By Katherine Heigl + How You Can Dress Like Her If You Want To


Katherine Heigl in Los Feliz (November 29th, 2011)


Katherine Heigl in Loz Feliz, California (December 1st, 2011)


Now I’m not sure this is how I would dress in 75 degrees and sunny weather but Katherine Heigl seems to be convinced her wardrobe is quite appropriate for her trip to the nail salon. Of the three looks featured in this post, the one below happens to be my favourite. I know, I know….I shouldn’t be encouraging people but she is dressed well…even if she isn’t in New York City.

Selena Gomez Invokes Elvira in Julien MacDonald – 2011 MTV VMAs Red Carpet Fashion Report Card


Fear not SG fans and admirers, all is not lost here. I do love her Brian Atwood gold pumps (this girl has a great arsenal of kicks) and she certainly knows how to accessorize well. I have to say though, this was not one of her fashion triumphs. The top of the dress is busy enough to be a conversation starter so why is the bottom mini/maxi bit so distracting? Perhaps she could have pulled off the look if she had worn the design in a brighter colour (without the train) which would have made it look younger and fresher. Not in love with the hair-do for her either, too matronly. She looks like a high school teacher trying to be edgy at the prom.  C-

Mid Orange One Shoulder Soft Drape Dress – $33 (£20) –

By now you would have to be living under a rock not to know that Beyonce Knowles-Carter, wife of rapper and entrepreneur Sean Carter aka Jay Z is pregnant.  The singer informally announced that she’s expecting by reportedly telling the paparazzi on the red carpet at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles that she had a surprise as she cradled her belly displaying a small bump. Later on in the evening, following her performance of a new song entitled ‘Love on top’ she unbuttoned her jacket, turned sideways towards the crowd revealing her maternity pants(trousers) and showed off her baby bump. The crowd (who had already given her a standing ovation and probably found out about the pregnancy via twitter like the rest of us) went wild.  Congratulations Beyonce and Jay Z from the entire Fashionwidget team.
